10 Ridiculous Guys I Had to Date Before I Found My Person

Dating was fun, but I can’t say I miss it.  Here’s just a sampling of the wrong-for-me dudes I encountered on the road to destiny…

1. Didn’t like cheese guy

2. Forgot his wallet on the first date guy

3. Mirror-hogging metrosexual guy

pretty college guy

4.  Over 30 virgin guy

5. Didn’t laugh at my jokes and instead said “that’s funny” guy

6. Didn’t appreciate my booty guy

7. Only called the first half of the month until he ran out of cell phone minutes guy

8. Moody chain-smoking guy

9. Borrowed my accessories and makeup but still didn’t realize he preferred guys guy

10. Kept sending me books about “the swinging lifestyle” guy

Dear Dave, thank you for being you, and for liking cheese.  You’re my kind of guy.

      Well, there were more, but I was afraid of scaring my in-laws, who read the blog. The actor i dated was so bad he played a rapist on a daytime soap. Actually gay guy was my first bf, in summer camp, though he was a doll. Don’t all guys think they are funnier than us?

    I truly do hope you missed “the eternal poor suffering misunderstood soul guy”! I think that might be the worst of them all!
